An Esko woman pleaded guilty to criminal vehicular homicide after a fatal crash last summer.

Megan Dickenson was scheduled for a jury trial, but that was canceled when she pleaded guilty to drinking and driving when she hit and killed 34-year-old Kari Luoma. Jeremiah Luoma was also in the crash and was injured.

The crash happened on June 1, 2013 at the intersection of Canosia Road and North Cloquet Road.

Witnesses said Dickenson blew a stop sign and told police she admitted to drinking.

Dickenson will be sentenced in May.
